Engine Braking 650 vs 1000
I just sold my 650 and hope to get a new V-Strom 1000 pretty quick. I messed my back up yesterday and can barely walk, let alone ride a bike so I have to wait a week or ten days.
The only concern I MAY have with the 1000 is the often mentioned engine braking. Is it really much stronger than most other bikes on the road?n My 650 is the only recent Suzuki I have owned but I have ridden an Aftrica Twin and R1200GS in recent years of anyone who has ridden a V-Strom 1000 can compare engine braking to either of those bikes.
This is probably an OCD moment because something like engine braking, at least for me, is something I just get used to. If it is stronger I'll get used to it and probably miss it when I ride a bike with less and vice versa.
